The One Movie You Need To Watch Before It Leaves Netflix In January 2017
There is no shortage of incredible content on Netflix, with new movies and TV shows arriving all the time. Because of the constant influx of brand new series, it's easy to miss some of the classic offerings that Netflix features, and there's a pretty long list of amazing stuff leaving the streaming service in the coming weeks. While there are several movies on the list that deserve a second look, there's one in particular that you need to watch before it leaves Netflix in January 2017. And that movie is... drum roll, please... Bring It On, of course.
Originally released in August 2000, the cheerleading flick starring Kirsten Dunst, Eliza Dushku, and Gabrielle Union was nothing short of a sensation. By combining incredible routines with a fierce cast and a killer soundtrack, the movie was an instant classic with a throwback '90s vibe. As Bring It On is on Netflix until Jan. 1, 2017, it's time to re-watch it for the millionth time and have no regrets, because it's totally awesome. Spawning four sequels and Bring It On: The Musical , which was co-written by none other than Lin-Manuel Miranda, the Dunst flick is a crucial part of pop culture that must be consumed immediately. You know that I'm right.
For anyone that hasn't seen it — is there anyone? — Bring It On follows Torrance, played by Dunst, as she takes over as captain of her school's cheerleading squad, the Toros. She recruits the sarcastic and wonderful Missy, played by Dushku, and prepares the team for the national championships. However, following a scandal over stolen routines, Torrance becomes unsure that she can lead her team to victory after all. Mix this in with potential love interest Cliff (Jesse Bradford), and Bring It On becomes the perfect movie.
While Bring It On: The Musical didn't have a huge shelf life (it ran between 2011 and 2012), it's surely time to also revisit the musical version in light of Miranda's recent success. Bring It On is the perfect movie to watch before 2017 rolls around, as it'll remind you that nothing beats working hard alongside your best friends, and that success is about more than winning.
